As some of you have noticed, we now have two strike mission events on the calendar.  Wanted to put up a little post so that people understand what the goals are for each of them, and what is going to be beyond the scope of these events. Currently we are running 1 squad at each timeslot.  If we get the interest, I will work on figuring out how to get a second (or more) squad going at either timeslot so that as many people as possible can learn. For all of my events, you will need to be level 80, and have the ability to listen in discord for directions.

 

Event #1: Strike Missions -- Saturday Afternoons

The goal for this event is to teach and expand the collective knowledge of Strikes.  If you have never done them before and want to learn, this is the event I want you to show up at first.  For many people, this will be your introduction to playing in a group where you take up a defined role in GW2 (dps/boons/heals).  As opposed to a raid training group, my gear/build requirement is that you have thought about the role you want to play, and have talked with me about getting the gear, along with a timeline, not that you have gotten a raid build completed before you start.  

Event #2: Quick Strikes -- Wednesday Nights, Pre and Post Reset

The goal for this group is that we will take strikes we already know and understand, and complete them as quickly as possible.  As rewards reset daily for Strikes, the goal is to complete as many as possible before reset, then complete the same set of them after reset, to maximize loot while minimizing the time spent forming the group. As opposed to the Saturday group, the goal is not to teach during this event (as that will slow down our kills, and we are on a very strict time limit before the reset), so in addition to the Saturday groups requirements, this group requires that you have either attended a Saturday event before, or you have talked with me so that you are ready to kill at the start of the event and won't need explanation time. 

 

Things that will be out of scope for our Strike Events:

Raids -- While we will occasionally make some attempts at a raid boss, the goal here is to help people learn how to play in a role based group in GW2, learn how your build works in role based groups, and learn strikes.  There will be a point where people want to take that next step into full-time raid training, but hopefully by that point someone is running a GSCH raid training group again, otherwise I can recommend several raid training groups.  

Crazy Theorycrafting -- As many of the players in our group are first time players to this type of content, we'll be basically sticking with pre-made builds from either snowcrows or the raids section on metabattle.  The goal here is to get a build learned and understood that people would recognize if you started pugging strikes and raids. I know that many builds can be changed around and still be acceptable, but as many want to progress into raids at some point, getting a raid ready build together is easiest if you just cookie-cutter it.  Your future raid leader will thank you that they know what to expect :)

Gear Collection -- While we can certainly discuss how to get your hands on more/better gear, we won't be diverting into the open world during the event to help get it.  Obviously the gold that you earn during these events can help you get what you need, and people will most likely be willing to help you complete events at other times, but the goal is to stick in the Eye of the North during this event.

 

 

Hope to see you all out there!

I would alternate those events between Saturday and Wednesday unless target group is just NA people. Just my two cents. 

The most important thing in life will always be the people around you. Salud, mi familia.

I put the wednesday group as an official event because a number of people in the group were doing it anyway and just pugging whatever spots didn't fill.  As someone in NA, I can't put an event in wednesday day time.

 

If you think it is better, I can just unlist the wednesday event and invite whoever is online privately.  I wouldn't want to discourage people from the saturday event.  I won't pull it for this week because its already public but I'll pull it for next week.

Thanks for putting this together. What's the best way of getting in contact to discuss with you about gear/role (in-game, DM...etc)?

I came back to GW2 after playing just a bit at launch, and I'd like to start progressing towards getting into that sort of endgame content.

In discord is always a good option, although if you want to talk in game that is fine as well.  Many days you'll see me in one of the GW2 voice chat channels around daily reset, and you can feel free to poke otherwise to setup a time.  :)

 

(discord name is sscripko)

 

Hope to chat soon!
